We are working to protect the nation’s forests so that future generations can still enjoy them.
We know our climate is in crisis and our forests may be in trouble too. The threat and impact to our trees from pests and diseases is increasing. We are making sure our forests have the best chance to thrive despite the challenges.
We are experts. We use the latest science and evidence to help us plan, plant and safeguard our forests.
That’s why we will:
Grow our forests
With more trees and more forests, we will have cleaner air to breathe and more sustainable wood to use.
Be more connected
Joining up woodland across the landscape to make bigger forests for wildlife to thrive.
Be more diverse
Growing different types of tree that will survive in the changing climate.
Helping our trees and forests to be in better condition than ever.
